Something Wild Trail Running Festival - Sunday
This event, now in its 5th year, will again be held at Huccaby Farm, nestled in a secluded valley in Hexworthy, a perfect little haven on Dartmoor.
Events include the trail marathon, which has more than 1325m of ascent, and the half marathon, which also includes two crossings of the River Dart. Our Summit Wild Ultra (35 miles), is an ideal entry level ultra, although with 1,649m of climb, it’s no walk in the park, believe us!
There is also a 10km race, a 5 km race and a 1k and 2k race for the kids.
All in all, it’s a great weekend, whether you've travelled with your family or just want to see the best that Dartmoor has to offer.
Fully marked and marshalled course (with reflective stakes, surveyors flags, tape, plenty of large arrows)
Chip timing + 2 timing splits + live results online
Feed stations every 6 miles with water, energy drinks, cakes, flapjacks, Clive’s Pies, pretzels, banana, water melon + pies at the finish
Secure baggage drop, parking, toilets & showers
Professional First Aid
Prizes for top 3 male and female and first V40 & V50

ULTRA - TOTAL CLIMB 1381M (4533 FEET)
The Summit Wild Ultra is a new addition to the Something Wild Trail Running Festival. It is the ideal distance for your first ultra – even though it is by no means an easy ultra. It starts alongside the marathon and incorporates the marathon circuit plus one lap of Sunday’s 10K route.
MARATHON - TOTAL CLIMB 1325 METRES (4347 FEET)
The trail marathon is our blue ribband event. Starting and finishing at the festival site at Huccaby, it crosses the fulcrum of Dartmoor where east and west rivers meet at Dartmeet and completes a circuit of Bellever woods via Yartor, Babeny and Sherwell Farm. From here you will head east along Dr Blackalls Drive, crossing the river for a second time at New Bridge following a bone jarring descent and heading in to Holne Woods, then on in to Hembury Woods, skirting the brook before ascending the steep climb up Pupers Hill via Scorriton.
HALF MARATHON - TOTAL CLIMB 754M (2544 FEET)
Make no mistake: This is a tough half marathon, but you will be well rewarded with some of the best views that Dartmoor has to offer.
